Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

If no warning lights come on when the chime sounds then the first thing I would suspect as an internal failure in the central timer module.

Does this happen while sitting still as well as moving?
Does it happen from a certain input, such as when using turn signals, door locks, etc?
